Chelsea stay fifth after draw with United

Man Utd

Chelsea remain unbeaten under Thomas Tuchel but were unable to get the win that would have lifted them back into the top four.

They had a let-off in the first half when Manchester United were not awarded a penalty despite a VAR check after Callum Hudson-Odoi handled the ball in the area.

Hudson-Odoi, who was substituted at the interval, created the best chance of the first half when his driven right-wing cross just evaded the diving Olivier Giroud.

In a game of few clear-cut opportunities, the recalled Hakim Ziyech was denied by a fine second-half save from United keeper David De Gea.

The draw means Chelsea stay fifth in the Premier League table (which is the most popular UK betting venue)  – six points behind second-placed United.

Chelsea: Mendy, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, Hudson-Odoi (James 45)  Kante, Kovacic, Chilwell, Ziyech (Werner 78), Hudson-Odoi, Giroud (Pulisic 65).
Subs not used: Kepa, Zouma, Emerson, Alonso, Havertz, Jorginho.
